Hey Suzukir122, I'm glad you're okay! Sorry you lost your car, and I'm excited to see what your new car might be! Take care and glad to hear you're back on track  :)

What up CEB1993! Not quite back on track yet, but I have been driving my other car to and from work for the time being. Just registered my
bike today in an effort to keep that car in the garage more. I'm farther from my goal in terms of buying another car, so I may be selling some
of my lighting gear/lamps in an effort to catch up.  :'(
Right now, my 10 HPF Valmont Trigger Start ballasts that I never use, and my 3 self ballasted 23w Metal Halide Par38's, look to be in the red zone
for getting rid of.

Stop replacing fixtures that can be retrofitted.

Hey Suzukir, sorry to hear about your accident. Glad you're doing better now; I joined "car accident club" at the age of 14, and it was scarily similar to Foxtronix's accident; a T-bone whilst driving across an intersection, skidding 20-30 feet, ripping the tires off of the rims, etc.

Yeah it's been a long time since I've been in a car accident, before that accident occurred. Very, very long time. I'm usually a very safe driver,
even when there is a turbo in front of me. I try to keep it cool, but no one is perfect. People drive stupid... so there's nothing I can do to prevent
stupid people, except use defensive driving skills, etc.
I now own an additional car... a 2011 Mazda 3, my new daily driver.

Yep. I (and my mom) were driving in our 2018 Acura MDX of 45K miles last September, en route to my piano lessons, when a Subaru hatchback NAILS into us and causes US to go FLYING sideways, ripping the tires off the rims and almost broadcasting us straight into an active telephone pole. Thank God my mom hit full brakes when she felt the impact... the guy behind the wheel was going at least 65 in a 40 zone. My mom currently suffers from back pain and neck mobility issues from this accident, though that was not her first. Her first was the most fatal to her, yet the least fatal to our car... she took the brunt of the impact, sadly...
